Subject: Loved this movie
Subject: Not too bad logic
Subject: Bela as a mad scientist again
Of course, there are questionable points in the script, as Spuzz points out, but please read his review AFTER you watch the movie, NOT BEFORE!!! Too many SPOILERS!
Subject: Sam Katzman
He did better with the Bowery Boys in pure comedies. This one looks like it could be a comedy very easily, and probably should have been. There are too few characters to handle Katzman's chaotic approach and too few comic reliefs. But it was probably a good Saturday matinee.
Subject: good stuff
not a bad movie at all.
there are two scenes in this film that are classic lugosi.where he shows his utter cruel personality that is just a joy to watch.
well worth the time
Subject: Not a Hitchcock movie.
Soon sheÂs off to BelaÂs lair, when she meets a sort of strange looking doctor who may or may not be eeeevil. It all cumulates in a totally farfetched plan to have a fake wedding to capture the mad scientist, but it seems that the scientist has x-ray vision, as he foils her plans, Oh no! What will happen?
I actually liked this movie as a bit of a guilty pleasure. Lugosi is great here, his hangers-on are all very very strange, the story is actually quite nasty in some places which makes it all most watchable. A fun little view.
